Finding and visiting your property in Chile

The buying process

While you can technically purchase property in Chile without even being there, it is highly recommended you visit the country to find your ideal home.

Looking for property

As there is a relatively large number of expats looking for property in Chile, there is a large range of dedicated websites and magazines in English. In popular areas such as Santiago, Valparaiso and Viña del Mar, it’s relatively easy to find available property. In other areas, it can be much harder to locate property for sale.

Aside from real estate agencies, you can look for property at any of these places:

  • Notary office boards
  • Land registry office boards
  • Local newspapers
  • Websites
